Character Quotes

Sit down before fact like a little child, and be prepared to give up every preconceived notion. Follow humbly wherever and to whatever abyss Nature leads, or you shall learn nothing.
Thomas Huxley
The common dogma of fundamentalists is fear of modern knowledge, inability to cope with the fast change in a scientific-technological society, and the real breakdown in apparent moral order in recent years.... That is why hate is the major fuel, fear is the cement of the movement, and superstitious ignorance is the best defence against the dangerous new knowledge. ... When you bring up arguments that cast serious doubts on their cherished beliefs you are not simply making a rhetorical point, you are threatening their whole Universe and their immortality. That provokes anger and quite frequently violence. ... Unfortunately you cannot reason with them and you even risk violence in confronting them. Their numbers will decline only when society stabilizes, and adapts to modernity.
G Gaia
Moral victories don't count.
Savielly Grigorievitch Tartakower
When thou seest an eagle, thou seest a portion of genius lift up thy head
William Blake
How can anyone govern a nation that has 246 different kinds of cheese
Charles De Gaulle
In America you can go on the air and kid the politicians, and the politicians can go on the air and kid the people. Personal relations are the important thing for ever and ever and not this outer life of telegrams and anger.
Edward Morgan Forster
I enjoyed my own nature to the fullest, and we all know that there lies happiness, although, to soothe one another mutually, we occasionally pretend to condemn such joys as selfishness.
Albert Camus
Music like religion, unconditionally brings in its train all the moral virtues to the heart it enters, even though that heart is not in the least worthy.
Jean Baptiste Montegut
The teacher's task is not to implant facts but to place the subject to be learned in front of the learner and, through sympathy, emotion, imagination and patience, to awaken in the learner the restless drive for answers and insights which enlarge the personal life and give it meaning.
Nathan M. Pusey
No plan can prevent a stupid person from doing the wrong thing in the wrong place at the wrong time--but a good plan should keep a concentration from forming.
Charles E. Wilson
Nothing that was worthy in the past departs no truth or goodness realized by man ever dies, or can die.
Thomas Carlyle
It is really the undergraduate who makes a university, gives it its lasting character, smell, feel, quality, tradition ... whose presence creates it and whose memories preserve it.
Sen O'Faolin
The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher regard those who think alike than those who think differently.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
If God did not exist it would be necessary to invent Him. But all nature cries aloud that He does exist that there is a supreme intelligence, an immense power, an admirable order, and everything teaches us our own dependence on it.
Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire
Engineering is the art of organizing and directing men and controlling the forces and materials of nature for the benefit of the human race.
Henry G. Stott
The universe seems wondrous to me, with or without God. It has powerful lines and uncompromising ways. Patience and time sit like sages on the planets, strong and impersonal. There is a stark beauty to all of this.
Real Live Preacher
